Explanation expected on missing journalist from Saudi Arabia as Mike Pompeo arrives

Mr Trump dispatched Mr Pompeo to Riyadh for what the State Department described as

"We went inside all the rooms, without any exceptions".

"It just didn't seem like a situation that we would want to get into", said the actor, who was at the Defense Department to speak about his experience in making the new Navy submarine attack movie "Hunter Killer". It has final say on any and all actions taken by its representatives.

According to the source, the investigators took hammers to some walls and flooring to explore behind them.

There were also reports of bright flashlights inside the consulate indicating forensic activity.

Turkey has wanted to search the consulate for days.

Earlier, the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia, Walid Bin Abdul Karim El Khereiji, was summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

Graham, discussing the feared killing of Saudi journalist and USA resident Jamal Khashoggi, a critic of the monarchy, was backed by Marco Rubio, another of the top Republicans in the upper house, who described the crown prince as "young and aggressive".

Trump said he could not confirm such reports.

On Monday, sources told CNN that the report will acknowledge that Khashoggi died in a botched interrogation, one that was meant to lead to his abduction from Turkey.

Pompeo reached Saudi Arabia for urgent talks with King Salman seeking answers about the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi.

Mr Pompeo was to have have dinner with King Salman's son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, after meeting the king. Another member of the group identified by Turkish official media and appearing in the alleged passport scans is Muhammad Saad al-Zahrani, who has appeared on Saudi state TV alongside Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Trump said Pompeo may go to Turkey after Saudi Arabia.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed Tuesday in Riyadh to meet Saudi leaders over the suspected murder of one of the kingdom's most prominent critics.

As a Virginia resident and Post columnist, Khashoggi's disappearance has drawn the White House into the Saudi-Turkish standoff.

The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has arrived in Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman over the disappearance of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as reports emerged that Riyadh was poised to acknowledge that Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul. The top US diplomat made no comments to reporters before meeting with MBS.

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Turkey, the Turkish media reported October 16. Turkish officials say they believe he was murdered there and his body removed.

Turkish sources have told MEE that they do not trust the Saudis, and expect them to hinder the investigation.

The official did not provide details on the evidence that was recovered during the hourslong search at the diplomatic mission that ended early Tuesday.

He reiterated US concern over Khashoggi's disappearance, Nauert said, adding that both foreign ministers had "agreed on the importance of a thorough, transparent, and timely investigation".

Overnight, Turkish forensic teams searched the consulate building where the renowned journalist was last seen entering.

Bachelet stopped short of calling for an independent worldwide investigation, unlike Khashoggi's family, who late on Monday released a statement after a long period of silence.

Cleaning personnel enter Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on Monday.
